Chikuwaemil was born and raised in Osaka, Japan. Described as a cute, surrealistic, magical drawing artist with no formal art education, this young talent is already making an impression on Japan’s contemporary art market. Her unprecedented “kawaii- annihilism” art style looks at the world through a pure and unique filter. Chikuwaemil’s painting techniques range from analog to digital to collage, using a diversity of media and found materials. In 2010, Chikwuaemil began exhibiting her pop-culture and anime-inspired artwork professionally, working with prominent art galleries such as KaiKai Kiki Gallery-Osaka, Kaikai Kiki Gallery-Nakano, Billiken Gallery, and featured in publications Hi-Fructose Magazine, and Vogue-Italy, to name a few.
About Madoka Kinoshita:
As a young girl, Osaka-based artist Madoka Kinoshita loved to draw her favorite cartoons and animated characters. At the young age of 23, Madoka became a professional illustrator, producing digital artworks for everything from train station advertisements, credit cards, to character designs of popular video games in Japan. In 2009, Madoka began experimenting with her now signature technique of colormasking acrylic paints onto canvas so perfectly that the work appears digital. Since then, her career has taken off to include international exhibitions in museums and art galleries worldwide. Most importantly, Madoka’s artwork puts a smile on the face of anyone who sees it.
